Axioms list

Differentiation, Undifferentiation, Wholes, Genio[ or Creativity], Time [or evolution], and Subsumes

Nature, Soul, Mental Subsumes, Striving etc. These depend on particular Human problem investigated and point of view.

False Subsume, False Genio, False Time, False Differentiation, False Undifferentiation, False Wholes


Paradoxing, the idea that a duality or paradox can be created within a Human when before we have a onesided behavior. Example, empathy. This paradox arises because within the entity is the potential for this to arise.

Potential. The potential of paradoxing is built into a ground, a physiology, a subsume. If there is no potential in the substructure then we can have no paradoxing. This ground can be called the 'Human Dialectic'

Paralleling, within a Human we can recreate the external world, by creating mental elements that express differentiation or undifferentiation or both. Example, golden rule. This paralleling leads to new social institutions and practices. At the same time, paralleling can run in the opposite direction from the external realm into the personal realm.

Abstract to real, related to paralleling is the idea that abstract ideas lead to changes in concrete behaviors in the world.

Wholes in wholes, at each level, worlds can be created filled with many elements and many specific dualities of differentiation and undifferentiation. These wholes are at upper and lower levels, and also overlap internal and external boundaries.

Diversal is the condition where there has been a shift in emphasis from differentiation to undifferentiation or vice versa. This happens often.

Bias and nebias, the bias is the general emphasis or focus, in the case of differentiation and undifferentiation it is differentiation. The nebias is a secondary stress, although it can in situations become the primary concern via a diversal, undifferentiation can dominate.

Differentiation and undifferentiation producing each other, for example, undifferentiation can help produce individuals. Differentiation can sometimes lead to undifferentiation too.

Striving vs. balance. Evolution causes differentiation and undifferentiation to move to higher levels. We are faced then with two types of dualities. The first is balance of differentiation and undifferentiation in a viable operating whole. The second duality is that of striving. This includes the battle between lower and higher. Value dialectics such as good/bad, lower/higher, right/wrong, true/false etc. force us to higher levels. Two dialectics then appear: one of balance and management, the second is growth and imbalance, in a sense. One is more practical, the other is more spiritual.

Individuality vs. balance. When developing an identity a person seeks bias to distinguish herself, himself. Seeking a balanced identity is too limited. Bias trumps balance but in later phases it is introduced to stabilize the personality. This is a major dynamic in identity formation.
